Hi,

I study OCR A Level English Literature and I was wondering whether you are allowed to talk about literary talks translated into English in Paper 1 (the one where you study a set of texts, like Dystopian, Gothic, texts written by women...). Because in the other paper (poetry & drama) one of the texts is Ibsen’s ‘A Doll’s House’ — and Ibsen was Norwegian — so if you can study a translated text in the other paper than does the exam board apply that to the other paper too?

If you read the spec https://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/171200...ature-h472.pdf (or just search for 'translation' in it as I did) it says you can't study texts in translation for the NEA but it doesn't mention anything about it in Content of Comparative and contextual study (Component 02) so I guess you can.
